May I ask you a small favor?
Last night I applied for a small business grant. Being awarded the grant could mean the world for my small business. In order for my application to be considered I need 200 more votes for my company LuSa Organics before the end of the week.
I see each day how many of you come here to read my words, so if even a fraction of you are willing to cast a vote for me I would be considered!
If awarded the grant many doors would open for my family and my business that would transform how we make our products and run our company.
I have a dream of LuSa owning an organic farm where we could grow our own organic herbs and ingredients. Imagine rolling fields of organic mint, comfrey, lavender, and calendula. We would build or renovate a small barn in which to distill and press oils, dry herbs, and transform these basic ingredients into our healing organic body care.
The grant would help us do this and more. Help with marketing. Staffing. Growth. A filling machine perhaps.
It would be huge, I tell you.
What I am asking is for your vote. It will take you less than a minute to show your support.
1. Go to the Mission: Small Business web page.
2. Click the bottom right blue button: Log in & Support (there is even a fast "log in with Facebook option).
3. Search "LuSa Organics" in the company search bar and click to vote!
That's all it takes.
Thank you for coming here each day and reading my words. And thank you for supporting this little dream I have. Just the process of writing the grant was exciting as I was able to see more clearly what more funding will create for this little venture of mine.
Edited to add: I just emailed to see if there is a non-Facebook way to vote. Strangely there is not. Here is their reply to my inquiry:
"Thank you for your email. We do not have any other ways of voting other than through Facebook. The goal of this program is to bring attention to local small business and we are doing all we can to drive traffic to these business' social media pages. We appreciate your feedback and will obviously take it into consideration for future programs."
